London, United Kingdom
Mystery shrub 1: can anyone please tell me what this shrub is? It has dark purple, pointed leaves and red stems. In late summer (I think..) it produces fairly insignificant tiny white flowers. I cut it right down in January and it is growing up straight again - but by late summer the stems will be sagging. It was planted by the previous owner and the closest shrub I can find in my gardening encylopedia is atriplex, but I'm not sure.
